what do you collect?

Hi

this blog was inspired by my lovely friend Asma  and her post of the things she collect 😀 i wanted to share what i collect even tho i realized i don’t collect so many things

and i have no idea why i collect them it’s just fun to have something to look forward to, seeing my collection getting bigger in front of me, maybe that’s what keeps me going! anyway, here’s what i collect:

First:

Creative bookmarks, i can’t get enough of it and i just started to collect them, also i do control my self ! because if i gave my self the chance….nothing will stop me from buying all the bookmarks in the world 😛

this one called Gimble, it comes in two sizes ! Very good i use it all the time, got it from Amazon but it’s also available at Virgin mega store

*Nerd Alart haha! harry potter bookmark , i used it for awhile because these kind of bookmarks ruin the paper so i just put it on my shelf next to harry potter’s eyeglasses 😛 got it from hamleys – london but you can find it Here !

i got both of them from virgin mega store! ( wow i just realized why i go to that store in the first place lol )

anyway they both ruined the paper i don’t use them that much! but they look cool so it’s okay 😛

Second:

Bottle top…it’s kinda embarrassing when i go to someone’s house and i wait for the chance to hide it in my bag! so yea it’s obsession 😛

by the way i took the picture of Pepsi top because it’s the only Pepsi in my collection! coke all the way 😀

and i do want to do something useful or fun with it! i’ll keep collecting and see 😀

Third:

Pigeon feather, even though I HATE PIGEONS! But the feather is so beautiful! And I thought of coloring it and hang it somewhere but I guess I need more 😀

Book review: Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops

اهلا

قبل كم يوم وصلني هالكتاب الخطير , خفيف جدا وظريف , ما يهم متى اقراه ومتى اخلصه وكم يبقى لي

الوقت اللي احسه ما عندي وقت ما يمدي اخش جو في الكتاب اللي اقراه حاليا “انسرجنت” امسك هذا واقرا شوي منه

!الكتاب واضح من عنوانه, حرفيا

Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops

By

Jen Campbell

الكاتبه تشتغل بائعه في مكتبه في لندن, جمعت بعض المواقف اللي تحصل معها من الزبائن عن طريق البلوق حقها

وبرضوا عطت فرصه لبعض البائعين في امريكا وكندا انهم يرسلون لها بعض المواقف اللي تحصل معاهم

Goodreads rate: 4.04

amazon description: “What is your biggest pet peeve?”
This simple Twitter question posed by John Cleese inspired bookseller Jen Campbell to start a blog collecting all the ridiculous conversations overheard in her bookstore

Goodreads page

الكتاب اتعب اقول عنه ظريف, مو بس ظرافة يعني اضحك طول الوقت هههه

بس ظريف من كل النواحي, ودي اعلقه على الجدار, الكفر تصميمه خطير حلو احسه مزاجي بالرسومات

وبرضو جوا مليان رسومات على بعض القصص , مره عاجبتني

والمصيبه فيه مواقف ما ادري كيف تحصل اصلا , يعني فيه ناس كذا تسوي وكذا تقول اذا دخلت مكتبه؟ من جدهم؟

عشان احمسكم كلكم تشترونه , بوريكم مثالين مو اكثر عشان ما اخرب

الكاتبه حاليا بدأت تجمع للكتاب الثاني
 MORE Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops

انا صراحه احس الكتاب هذا ماراح يخلص! يعني لو تطلع كتاب جديد كل سنه ماله نهايه ولا ممكن توقف

ذكرت في مدونتها بدأت تجمع وطلبت برضو من المكتبات ترسلها, تحمست مره اصير اشتغل في مكتبه بس عشان اجرب الشعور

والحماس الاكثر لما يجي احد يسأل عن كتاب اعرفه ويسأل شي غبي مره اجلس اضحك يعني شلون جت في باله!

ودائما طبعا الاستظراف على كتب هاري بوتر

ما اطول, هاف فن واللي مسافر يشتريه قبل يرجع

Kissed my free time Goodbye

HI

how’s everyone ? school? college? work? 😀

first of all i’m not happy with this semester, the thing is, it is really really weird semester from the beginning till now, it’s like they just realized what does assignment/HW/work sheet mean!

any way it’s really dark scary place i don’t want to go in there and start talking about my college life

i might started talking about college because i wanted to say that there wasn’t a free time i could sit and read, no breaks. no free time at home

so…i stopped for awhile and i tried to get back by picking up random books on my shelf just to put me out of my misery but the idea didn’t work

anyway i’ll give you the list of the books i started and didn’t get the chance to complete

First:

looking for Alaska by john green ( who doesn’t know john green?)

i reached page 10 then i stopped, i guess i wasn’t in the mood for that kind of stories

second:

a reliable wife by Robert goldbrick

also i didn’t finish 20 pages which is sad because the story seems interesting

third:

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens

this novel is SO hard ! i got tired reading it

i know they are Great but the timing wasn’t, i’m sure there will be a perfect time to read these books

C2

but here’s another list of the books i’ve read since my last review Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay

Revived / Forgotten by Cat Patric : THEY BOTH AMAZING

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: Big Disappointment

The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern : Good not great

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger: i don’t know what to say about this…

Looks by Madeleine George: Typical

Divergent by Veronica Roth : BRILLIANT, LOVED IT

A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer: weird

قصص القران – عمرو خالد : Beautiful thing

The Present : The Secret to Enjoying Your Work And Life by Spencer Johnson: i loved it, simple and full of wisdom

The Summer I Learned to Fly by Dana Reinhardt: so sweet

C1

this so quick i know and i just want to update my blog with new books

if you’re interested in any of these  just ask for a Full review i’ll be happy to do it 😉
